Chapter 250: Patting on the Head is Not Enough
Bai Tingzhang should have been excited after getting his cell phone back, but at this time, he no longer had any desire to contact Ling Fei.
After he switched his cell phone on, Ling Fei&x2019;s name kept showing up on his caller ID, yet he simply ignored the incoming calls and messages.
&x201C;Young master, why don&x2019;t you just answer her call and end this relationship once and for all?&x201D; the butler asked as he sighed after Master Bai left the villa. &x201C;Just so you can achieve closure and finally give up completely.&x201D;
Bai Tingzhang gripped the cell phone tightly in his hands until he started trembling. After a short while, he finally answered the call when the phone started ringing again.
He used a stiff tone and pretended to be cold and indifferent before he said, &x201C;Can you stop calling me already? Ling Fei, haven&x2019;t you hurt me enough?&x201D;
&x201C;Tingzhang&x2026;I was just worried about you&x2026;&x201D; Ling Fei replied over the other end of the line. She obviously did not expect Bai Tingzhang to have that sort of attitude towards her.
&x201C;Worried about me? Come on, you can stop pretending already. I know that you are just worried about your own future. You are afraid that you have already lost your gold sponsor and that there would no longer be anyone backing you up in future. Ling Fei, you are just a toy that I am already done playing with. I have already backed you up and supported you for so many years. You should be contented with everything that I have already done for you.&x201D;
After listening to Bai Tingzhang&x2019;s words, Ling Fei lost her temper immediately. &x201C;Bai Tingzhang! Who do you think you are? You were the one who insisted on getting closer to me and you were the one with wishful thinking when you fell in love with me. Did I force you to like me or support me? No! You chose to wait for me and stay by my side even though you knew who I truly love. So, why are you trying to place the blame on me now, when you had willingly chosen to stay by my side?&x201D;
&x201C;That is why I&x2019;ve finally realized that this was a mistake. Don&x2019;t call me anymore in future. We are over.&x201D;
&x201C;Fine! If you want us to be over, so be it. I hope that I never have to see you again in this lifetime.&x201D;
After that, Ling Fei hung up the phone before she threw her cell phone across the room.
When Ling Fei&x2019;s agent saw what had just happened, she felt that Ling Fei&x2019;s only hope was just thrown out of the window. &x201C;Ling Fei, I thought that you would have learned to be humble and more accepting after what has happened in these past two days. However, I have discovered that I was totally wrong and my expectations were totally unrealistic. Young master Bai was your only chance at getting back into the entertainment industry, but you threw everything away because of your foul temper. You can no longer rely on young master Bai in future. So, even if you have to be on the front cover of a cheap magazine or participate in low budget variety shows in future, know that you asked for it! Do you realize how selfish you are?&x201D;
&x201C;I have already worked so hard and stayed up for the past two days just so I can continue defending you and our team. Yet, you still choose to throw tantrums as if you can still afford to do so.&x201D;
&x201C;Stop it!&x201D; Ling Fei yelled at her agent. &x201C;What else do you want me to do?&x201D;
&x201C;The agency has already requested for me to manage another new artiste earlier today. I had not intended to take up the offer initially, but on second thought, I think I have no choice but to accept it since I need to make a living too. Therefore, I will be able to spare very little time for you in future because I will be busy managing another new artiste. I used to spoil you so much and I took care of your every want and need. In future, I will wait for you to beg me to come back to you.&x201D; After that, Ling Fei&x2019;s agent walked out of her house immediately.
&x201C;Go! I will never beg you even if I am about to die!&x201D; Ling Fei shouted before she started throwing things around the house.
Her agent was still standing outside her door at this time and she sneered upon hearing what Ling Fei had just said.
So be it&x2026;
Ling Fei probably had not tasted what it feels like to be alive when you have nothing else left in the world.
At seven o&x2019;clock that night, the sky was already completely dark.
Jiang Yuning was so busy thinking about what she could do for all of her fans that she did not even notice her husband entering through the front door.
&x201C;Someone used to greet me whenever I step through that front door. Can I just assume that I have already fallen out of favor with my queen?&x201D;
As soon as Jiang Yuning heard Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s voice, she placed her laptop down and jumped up immediately before she ran towards Lu Jingzhi. She jumped into Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s arms before she said, &x201C;What are you talking about? My husband is so sexy and attractive. How could you ever fall out of favor with me? My mind is just occupied because I am thinking about what I can do to help my fans.&x201D;
&x201C;Other artistes would simply send their fans their personal photographs to make the fans happy, but you always want to make things so complicated.&x201D;
&x201C;Eh? Second brother&x2026;how did you know that?&x201D; Jiang Yuning suddenly asked as she held onto Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s face. &x201C;Are you secretly checking out other artistes behind my back?&x201D;
When Lu Jingzhi felt Jiang Yuning&x2019;s hands touching his face, he could feel the calluses that were forming on her hands from her constantly training on how to shoot recently.
Therefore, instead of answering Jiang Yuning&x2019;s question, he quickly spoke to Sister Liang, who was just about to pack up and leave the villa. &x201C;Sister Liang, please prepare some hand care products and place them around the house. Make sure to place these products in areas which are more easily accessible.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning immediately retracted her hands before she looked up at Lu Jingzhi. &x201C;Second brother, you are the sweetest.&x201D;
After that, Lu Jingzhi sat down on the sofa with Jiang Yuning and loosened the buttons on his shirt before he asked, &x201C;Any thoughts so far?&x201D;
&x201C;It seems as though most of my Ginger Candies are still students. I am thinking about how I can find a way to give them some practical benefits.&x201D;
&x201C;How about creating a free educational or psychological counselling platform?&x201D; Lu Jingzhi suggested right away. &x201C;This way, you can also find out if any of the Ginger Candies are facing any particularly difficult situations in their homes and provide them with the necessary assistance that they may require.&x201D;
&x201C;But building this kind of platform can also be very time- and money-consuming.&x201D;
&x201C;You have your own fan support club and you already have a website set up for you. You could build the platform directly on your website. It would be very easy to implement. After that, you could hire some education experts and some psychologists to provide some online courses or counselling to help these children relieve some stress and also learn something new every day.&x201D;
After listening to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s explanation, Jiang Yuning placed her arms around his neck and kissed him directly. &x201C;Second brother, you really are the best.&x201D;
&x201C;But you should know that once you start something like this, it cannot be ended without a valid reason. You will also require sufficient funds and talents to help you maintain the platform even when you are not earning any income from this. So, are you certain that this is what you want to do?&x201D;
&x201C;Second brother, you know that my biggest regret would always be the fact that I was unable to attend college or university. Therefore, I really do want to help the students who may be in the same predicament or financial difficulties as I had been in the past. I want to provide some comfort to them.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi patted Jiang Yuning gently on her head and replied, &x201C;Alright then, just go ahead and do it.&x201D;
&x201C;Hm&x2026;patting on the head is not enough.&x201D; Jiang Yuning grabbed Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s hand and refused to let him go.
&x201C;What else do you want, then?&x201D;
&x201C;Let&x2019;s take a bath together, second brother&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she acted coquettishly in front of her man.
Jiang Yuning conveyed her idea to Vera early the next morning.
Vera pondered for a short while before she finally replied. &x201C;I think that you have a very good idea, but it is very expensive to maintain. Furthermore, it is very risky for an artiste to be involved in charities because once this news leaks out to the public, you are at risk of getting criticized.&x201D;
&x201C;Last night, Lawyer Zou called me and told me that the court had already sentenced and given out the verdict for Miss Fu&x2019;s case. I have received a lot of shares in Dongheng Enterprise, but I am planning to sell them and deposit the money into a bank account before I use the interest generated to fund the educational and counselling platform.&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s sentence, Vera was filled with curiosity and she quickly asked, &x201C;You did not enquire about how many years your mother has to serve in prison?&x201D;
&x201C;That is not important,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she diverted the question immediately.
That person was no longer important to her.
&x201C;Alright then. If you want to do it, we can start right away. I will make the arrangements for you in a low-key manner so that you will not be criticized.&x201D;
&x201C;Okay! As long as the children who are really facing difficulties get the help that they need, I do not want any attention on myself. Make sure to ask my brother to suppress and get rid of any news that might surface online.&x201D;
&x201C;I understand.&x201D; Vera nodded her head. &x201C;I guess this would be beneficial even if just one of your Ginger Candies benefits from this platform. This is to thank all of your two million fans for their love and support. Even if the platform is not successful and does not do well in future, you will also receive less criticism.&x201D;
